For Men: IPL Photorejuvenation Laser Treatments

Thanks to all of you who completed our survey and entered the drawing to win skin care products!  Your input is very helpful.

We see an increasing number of men interested in IPL photorejuvenation laser treatments.  Some of these need to be modified to make sure men get a great result.

Photorejuvenation/IPL, which is usally done for brown spots, dilated blood vessels (telangectasias), and general redness on the face, should avoid the beard area of men. This is because IPLs have a range of wavelengths, and some of those wavelength can halt or slow the growth of hair follicles. Unless you like a moth-eaten look, be sure to discuss this with your doctor or nurse ahead of time.

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
